Neath Port Talbot council have accepted that more needs to be done to improve children's services after criticism from the Welsh government and the Chief Inspector of social services.
The Deputy Minister for Social Services has said she is not prepared for services to children to fall below acceptable standards.
The minister added that she has met with the Leader and the Chief Executive of the council and that she expects immediate action.
Children's services in Neath Port Talbot are failing to protect vulnerable people and failing to meet statutory requirements according to the body charged with inspecting them.
